ALTERNATIVES TO CAPITALISM: THEORETICAL, PRACTICAL, VISIONARY

From the U.S. Marxist Humanists 

Alternatives to Capitalism: Theoretical, Practical, Visionary

Join us for a discussion on the ongoing work of developing a philosophically grounded alternative to capitalism. It is clear that existing society has little to offer except years and even decades of austerity, reduced living standards, increasing social anxiety, and the continued enrichment of an oligarchic elite. The time has come to create new visions of an alternative that is inherent in the present and in the legacy of Karl Marx.
